    Please report bugs to bugreport.apple.com (a developer account is not required to do this).

    iOS 9.3 beta 3
    Build:
    13E5200d

    Critical Bugs
    • Setting your device date and time to 1st of January 1970 on 64-bit devices (iPhone 5S and up) will brick the phone forever, even a DFU won't fix this (known to affect iOS 8 and iOS 9).
    • Restoring from a backup from either iTunes or iCloud will result in failed verification of iCloud account, which causes sync issues and incomplete restores.

    Bugs (new to beta 3)

    • Swiping between open apps via 4-finger-gesture causes the screen to go blank for a second on iPad Air 2 and iPad Pro.
    • Feedback app appears to be missing in some cases.
    • Time missing on status bar for a number of seconds after unlock to Home screen.
    • App icons continue to shift when returning to Home screen from current app or Notification Center.
    • Swiping right on a notification on the lockscreen does nothing. It only takes you to the homescreen.
    • Airplay doesn't work with Apple TV (tested with: Apple TV 3, iPad Air 2, iPhone 6s)
    Changes
    • iOS 9.3 beta 3 now scores 419 on HTMLTest.com compared to 409 for iOS 9.0.
    • Verizon Wi-Fi calling (new).
    • New News toggle under iCloud settings in countries with unsupported News app.
    • Night Shift now takes several minutes to completely activate if you use a highly tinted setting (>10 minutes)
    Bug fixes
    • CrashSafari website no longer does anything.
    • Landscape Control Center no longer cuts the right side of icons.
    • Animation snap in Task Switcher when closing multiple apps is fixed.
    • 3D Touch trackpad issues fixed.
    • Bookmark links toolbar on iPad Air 2 in Safari now rendering correctly (was broken in beta 2)
    • Fixes bug that causes the device to consume large amounts of cellular data. Settings > Cellular > System Services > Documents & Sync showed over 8 Gbyte.
    Performance
    • iPhone 6 Plus: Task Switcher scrolling is fluid; not extremely fast.
    • iPhone 6: Task Switcher is 100% smooth and closing the last app does not have the weird glitch where the Home screen bounces left and right.
    • iPhone 6: App load times greatly improved. Tapping apps is almost as smooth as iOS 8 and the load-in time is really quick compared to beta 2.
    • Improved performance on iPhone 4s, iPad 2 and first gen iPad mini. Apps launch faster and Spotlight doesn't lag anymore.
    • 60 FPS now in Multitasking area on A5 processor.

    Edit: Fixed

    I was waiting for this thread, surprised it took this long, almost made it myself. :) Any differences?

    Scrolling in the task switcher isn't as insane as before.
    One small flick would run through twenty apps in a millisecond.
    Now it is much more fluid and the physics are better. (iPhone 6 Plus)

    Doesn't deleting public beta profile cause to see developer betas? Deleted then restarted still no updates.

    Night Shift settings are now localized in German and the slider snaps in the middle.

    More fluid overall. Touch ID opens phone immediately. Spotlight and task switcher aren't dropping frames. Swiping left to Proactive screen loads the news articles the first time (before they wouldn't load until you swiped back and forth a second time). Control Center and Notification Center both pull up and down fluidly. I haven't seen a jarring animation yet. When orientation is unlocked, the screen rotates very nicely. Anything else you're interested in specifically?

    In beta 2, on T-Mobile's network, there would be some apps that would refuse to load or do anything on cellular data

    • The time in the status bar is missing for a noticeable amount of time after unlocking with Touch ID to the homescreen. Not sure if also present without Touch ID with normal swipe to unlock.
    • When unlocking the iPhone (Plus) in landscape the whole status bar is missing not as long as the missing time, but noticeably too. (tested on iPhone 6s Plus and iPad Air 2).
